You hear it every day in high school hallways and in college dormitories. You'll even hear it when you enter the real world... at the office water cooler and at formal dinner parties.
"What score did you get on the SAT?"
The test just won't go away.
It's only natural to wonder where we rank intellectually among our friends, family, and co-workers. But have you ever wondered how the rich and famous fared? Fortunately for you (and them), SAT scores are confidential. The following celebrities, though, have reported their results on a previous version of the SAT. Their scores are a combination of Math (800 points) and Reading (800 points). A 1020 is average. A 1600 is perfect. Where do your Math and Reading scores fall on the celebrity spectrum?

These SAT scores were collected from several reputable internet sources (including Time.com), but the validity of these scores is not known. Unless a celebrity offered an official score report to the original source, each score is likely self-reported and therefore not provable.
